Observation de l’expérience par un calcul méréotopologique d’événements spatio-temporels à partir de vidéos

Abstract : The dominant theory of knowledge presupposes an a priori knowledge, independent of sensitive experience and logically anterior to it. In contrast, empiricism considers experience as a source of an a posteriori knowledge. Pragmatism makes experience its central concept, and does not dissociate knowledge from the situation.In computer sciences, a priori knowledge is a central object and experience is limited to the representation of an agent's experience. The research on the calculation of situations is limited. The management of customer experience in organisations inherits this state which limits the concept of experience. However, concrete data (a posteriori) is as important as the relations of ideas (a priori). A. N. Whitehead proposes a so-called "organic" model of experience, based on a meretopological calculation of intra-connected spatio-temporal events. Building on input video data, this thesis proposes a calculation of the experience based on the whiteheadian mereotopology; Multiple Objects Tracking to access the spatio-temporal regions of the videos; an algorithm to calculate the meretopological relations between regions with the RCC8 ontology; the use of the Louvain method (graph clustering) to obtain the events in the graph; simplicial complexes to extract the associations of events. The data obtained is not semantic and reveals the spatio-temporal structure of the experience. The data can be reused by more complex systems (interpretation or recognition) for the management of the customer experience.
